    I just need to dye them and weather them. And get the edges of the hoslter sewn - then trim.

    Yes yes, where did you get it? Why is it white like that? And how the heck do you form it like that to make the actual holsters for the guns, I dont know how so Im just using the [arts from the rubies holsters and gluing leather on those.

    I bought the leather from the www.leatherfactory.com they sell pieces of belly leather wich is not dyed yet. Nice and thick.

    The holsters were cut out of wood - then wet formed the leather to follow the shape of it.

    Was the leather bend over a shaped piece of wood or into one? Just get it wet and hold in place for a while? I know nothing about leatherworking...

    What you do is soak the leather, and it gets a little flimsy. You can then stretch it over your master shape and let it dry overnight.

    Clamp the edges in place I assume? I searched around that site for leather as well, and they have very many sections, couldnt find belly leather. Do you recall what it is called and what section it is in?

    I stapled the sections until dryed.

    I go to the warehouse - I'm not sure if they have it online.

    Dude you live near chicago right? check out the warehouse address. it might be near you.

    I eventually plan to tackle this myself, would a normal sewing machine work through that type other leather or is something special needed? Damn we need a tut man!

    Probably not. There is some areas wich are really thick and you will need a heavy duty sewing machine. I have 3 thick layers in some areas.

    but you could sew 2 thin layers of leather with a regular sewing machine. You will need leather needles.

    Are those free moving swivel hinges on the upper back pieces to the belt so they can move? Also, how did you attach the straps to the back of the holster pieces? Sorry for all the question

    The areas connected to the top waist belt are attached by snaps.

    The upper straps that connect to the top of the holsters are attached via swivel rivets.

    The lower straps that go around your leg are gonna be sewn in to the back of holsters.

    I thought I remember hearing about a tool to stitch leather...or was that just to cut strips? I don't have a sewing machine so I need an alternative (or a new friend with one ).

    You can hand sew the leather by first poking the holes into the leather with an awl. I plan on just gluing them together, just like the ammo pouches. That's how the real suit is. There's just 4 little stitches or so at the top edges.

    Nov 30, 2002, 1:07 AM - Merged: Re: Ammo Pouches Template #68

    Here you go, as promised!

    I resized it down to 25% of the original size. So, what..I guess if you enlarge it to 400%, you should have normal size? It should JUST fit on a size of legal paper.
    The side was just traced from one of the pouches, you'll need to form the bottom part. The top can be as wide as you want it to be, it'll be folded inside when you close the pouch.
    I'll be picking up some more leather tomorrow to start making more of these suckers.
    As soon as I get the accurate measurement from the general here for the Boba pouches, then I'll be able to make a set of THOSE. The OJA templates stink! They're too small! No offense to anyone...

    The sides are done by wet forming and rubber cement.

    Dec 8, 2002, 1:19 AM - Merged: THE holy trinity of Jango belts! #72

    Finally, pictures of my belts, not scans! The holsters are Seeker's, I hadn't started mine yet when I took the picts. I need to re-work the wood forms we're using, because they're still a little roomie for the resin blasters we've got. Seeker just likes to rush sometimes.. I'm waiting to get my metal blasters before I actually finish mine. Just want to get THE perfect fit!

    Dec 8, 2002, 10:01 PM - Merged: BKBT's Newest Updates (Pics Fixed) #73

    I have been busy lately updating my patterns. This is my latest version of my gunbelts & I think they are totally screen accurate. The working pouches now slide on the belt & have full leather gussets with the correct reinforcement stitch. The aluminum connector plate has been totally refabricated to be more accurate with the correct brass D-rings. The holsters have been bonded with industrial adhesive with the correct reinforcement stitch.
    Everything has been custom dyed & antiqued to give it that old used look.

    Many hours have gone into this & no detail or cost has been spared. And all that leather smells so good! This makes a perfect addition to my full leather flak vest, matching helmet gasket, & braided leather belt.

    I think I have some leather left over to do another one.
    PM me for info.

    Seems the pics work for some but not others. It also appears that they disappear after awhile. I don't know what the %^&#36;*( is going on but here is the link to view them.

    I'm convinced I'M A ACCURATE FREAK!!!! WHY? WHY?

    Well after not being that happy with the shape of the firts holsters. I decided to redo the shape again. Plus this time the westars fit snugly.

    Could this be the end? thes saga contunies.
